Barbed Wire, Rose, Rusty, Wilted, Fence, Camp, Memory

Darkness descends

lust enters

bereft of love

devoid of emotions

on borrowed intimacy

insidious intentions

with a ruthless garb

plunders all night

leaving behind

a petrified mind

splintered body

and a trampled soul.

That’s the sad and ugly reality of our society at large.
